I have been living a gluten free lifestyle for a few years now. My partner is celiac and I am self-diagnosed gluten intolerant. I love to cook, but adapting to a gluten-free lifestyle has had its challenges. Cooking every meal with few shortcuts is time consuming, but I feel I've come to a sort of mastery with it. While there are plenty of "gluten-free" products on the market, my approach to a gluten-free lifestyle is to not have gluten-free substitutes but to find new and exciting approaches to food with real ingredients.

I'm a voice teacher in the Piedmont of North Carolina and an aspiring farmer. My partner and I currently farm about an acre, growing what food we can for ourselves and living a sustainable lifestyle to the best of our abilities. I love making jams, canning, baking sweet potato pie in our fire roasted wood oven, knitting, yoga, and cooking tasty gluten-free meals. Our next big adventure are some laying hens. Having fresh eggs all the time will be a dream!

Anyways, I just wanted to say "hi" and tell y'all a bit about myself. I'm am all game for some recipe trading and gluten-free baking secrets!

Hi Katrina,

I love your approach to the gluten-free and sustainable lifestyle! We don't have a vegetable garden as we live in a townhome with no yard, but growing own organic vegetables is something we are interested in doing in the future. It's wonderful that you can grow your own vegetables you eat. Good luck with the hens!
